The Charming Maine General Store That’s Been Open Since Before The Civil War

Maine towns might lack skyscrapers and other things that come with large cities, but what we do have far outweighs any of that. We’ve got character, history, and plenty of quaint spots to visit! And many of them are simply part of everyday life here in Vacationland. This general store comes with plenty of history and it’s a center of the community in the town that it calls home.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Hope General Store is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can learn more about the store by following them on Facebook. And if you have questions you can give them a call on 207-763-2816.

Another great spot with plenty of history is located in Kennebunk. The Landing Store has been around for more than 100 years and they’ve got the best food around!
